Elizabeth Hudson creates work about the links between contemporary
socio-politics and prior social and cultural histories. The situations
uncovered through Hudson’s work are expressed through the physical and
associative properties of the materials used, which include wood, metal,
textiles and paper. Complicity and deception are explored through
deliberately revealing the existence of façades, contradictions in
material and incongruous details.
Elizabeth Hudson completed a BA in Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art in
2013. Her project for recent solo exhibition Logic May Indeed be
Unshakeable at Intermedia, CCA Glasgow (2016) was shortlisted for the
Watershed/Pervasive Media Studio New and Emerging Talent Residency in
Bristol. Other recent exhibitions include the solo show Power Cut at Bocs
Celf, Caernarfon (2015), the performative workshop Costume and Song
Joust with Rhian Thoms at Supernormal Festival (2015) and group
exhibition My Head Is An Animal at South Square Gallery, Bradford (2014).
She has an upcoming solo exhibition at Glasgow Project Room, Trongate
103 in 2017. Hudson is a founder member of curatorial collective
VERBureau, with whom she exhibited work in Penumbra – a group
exhibition at APT Gallery, London (2014) supported by Arts Council
England – and co-curated the projects The Gift, If There Is Any at Artlicks
Weekend 2015, which was shortlisted for the Workweek Prize; Who Owns
The Cone? at Likky Ruph, Brooklyn, New York (2016) and Pokey Hat at New
Glasgow Society for Glasgow International 2016, for which she chaired the
